One of the reasons I wanted to do this paper was the fact that my life, basically, is surrounded by music. .
Whether itâ€™s a song, or the history of the artist that wrote that song, or even the pack of cigarettes the a known artist was smoking during itâ€™s first years in music college; my life is surrounded by music.
So I started thinking of the power that music has over me. And then, I remembered that Iâ€™m not that special.
Iâ€™m just one teenager in six billion people; so, if music had a very big impact on my life, wouldnâ€™t it be fair to speculate that it had a similar impact on a larger scale?.
I really think it did. .
Over the last forty or fifty years music has been one of the biggest influential factors in teenage society. So, thereâ€™s no problem in assuming that our present adult society is built with some of the ideas formed in these early years of modern music (the fifties & sixties to be exact); and that the future adult society will be influenced by the different views of the present teenage society.
What Iâ€™m going to do is try and illustrate a short and accurate history of music and the influence each period has brought; weather it was political, social, psychological or physical , Iâ€™m going to try to equally show the positive and the negative sides of the â€œstoryâ€â€¦.
